Garberville’s Trimmigrants Cited as Reason Not to Allow Medical Marijuana in South Carolina
According to an article in the Independent Mail, a 118-year-old newspaper in South Carolina, Corbin opposed the bill saying he had visited Garberville, known for being a center for marijuana farming. The article states,
“Every corner was just flooded with people with backpacks that were obviously homeless,” Corbin said.
He said he talked to his sons about what they saw in the community, telling them, “Boys you see what happens when you get hooked on pot? You lose everything you got including your house and your possessions.”
Corbin said he understands that the medical marijuana bill is not about “recreational use.”
“But my fear is that when we boil the frog it starts slowly until it comes to a full boil,” he said.
